Wayne, Terry, and family:
I am so sorry for your loss. Anita was a pillar of strength and inspiration for us all. I so much looked forward to seeing each and every day at QND for lunch. She made sure I was fed very well! She ran a wonderful kitchen and was a legend at QND. More than that she supported the entire school and loved her family ABOVE ALL ELSE. I will pray that God gives all of you the strength you need for the days ahead and that HE fills your heart and mind with only the wonderful memories you shared with her. God Bless.
